Locus is a four-piece Vancouver-based band, comprised of vocalist Kaila So, classically-trained twins Jason and Kelvin Chu, and multi-instrumentalist Eric Chan. All band members are songwriters and have shared all writing and production duties for their four studio records. Unlike many of its contemporaries, Locus did not begin as a cover band, and has written and performed only original songs since its inception in 2006.
The group has made nearly 40 live appearances at various local venues, including the Norman Rothstein Theatre, Tom Lee Music Hall, Vancouver Convention Centre, and Gateway Theatre. The band has also performed in support of several community events, most notably the Summer Night market and Vancouver Pride.
In the spring of 2008, Locus conceived, financed, and produced their debut independent EP “Silent Echo.” Locus released the follow-up to "Silent Echo," titled "Ambrosia," in January 2009. An EP titled "Shine" followed in November 2009. Locus released their self-titled record and fourth overall studio recording in late 2010.
